Dakota Johnson’s Red Plaid Pants Are The Ultimate Airport Outfit Inspiration


Nailing the perfect airport-ready outfit is no easy feat. Most travelers tend to think they need to sacrifice looking chic and opt for a comfort instead. Thankfully, Dakota Johnson has proven that it's quite simple to infuse the best of both worlds when she crafted a sophisticated travel outfit that was not only stylish, but looked rather cozy, too. Dakota Johnson's red plaid pants were fall-appropriate and perfect for a day of flying.

Johnson was photographed turning the tarmac into her own personal runway during a stop at LAX airport on Wednesday. The entertainer stepped out wearing a white shirt underneath a red, long-sleeved, v-neck sweater. Johnson paired the slouchy sweater with black-and-red plaid pants that were cropped right above the ankle to show off her nifty black-and-gray socks.

The actor paired her outfit with some comfortable tennis shoes and finished off the look with a pair of oversized, aviator sunglasses, a hint of pink lipstick, chain link earrings by Jennifer Fisher, and a head full of perfectly imperfect, tousled hair.

We've grown accustomed to seeing the Fifty Shades of Grey actor decked out in gorgeous evening gowns whenever she hits up an industry event or when she's making an appearance on one of Hollywood's many red carpets. But Johnson proved she has no problem switching things up and pulling off a laid-back, casual outfit when the situation arises. For her busy day of traveling, Johnson made an excellent style choice.


A polished outfit that can transition from the airport to your destination of choice can be easily put together. But if you get stuck on how to coordinate your pieces, you can take a few style cues from Johnson.
